La Bête is a rollicking play, written in rhyming couplets, and inspired by the life of the French comic master, Molière. In the play, Elomire (an anagram for Molière) is the leader of an acting troupe, which according to their patron the Princess has gone stale and listless. She decrees that they must now hire a new company member, the bombastic, vulgar street performer Valere. A standoff between Elomire and Valere ensues and their lively debate is both funny and dramatic, hilarious and tragic.
To help celebrate Trap Door Theatre’s 21st Anniversary, Jane’s Restaurant is offering a complimentary glass of wine with purchase of your entree! Just show your ticket to your server and enjoy! Jane’s is located in the front of the Trap Door building at 1655 W. Cortland Ave. www.janesrestaurant.com
Help Us Get a Heater For Our Theatre!
We at Trap Door are desperately seeking funds to replace our 20 year old heating system.
We’d like to keep our patrons warm while we continue to bring you some of the hottest theatre in town!
We need to raise $5,000 to get a new heating and A/C system. All donations are tax deductible. If you are able to support us in this very important request please send a check to:
Trap Door Theatre 1655 West Cortland Ave. Chicago, IL 60622 773-384-0494

Every bit helps us stay warm during the brutal Chicago winter.
